    ★★★

    It has a lot of the same strengths and weaknesses as something like Tron Legacy:

    + Amazing score and VFX 
    - Bad dialogue and tedious exposition dumps

    ★★★½

    “They literally call themselves the ‘Decepticons’. That doesn't send up any red flags?”

    It's amazing how simply adding actual characters to these films can make them substantially more watchable and satisfying.

  • Waterworld

    Waterworld

    ★★★½

    There was once a magical time in Hollywood where studios would invest close to $200M on actual original ideas. It sounds too crazy to believe now, but ambitious gambles like Waterworld used to be par for the course until studios discovered spandex superheroes.

    Even if all you know about this movie is its box office, this 'Mad Max on the high seas' has enough imaginative flourishes and nutty showmanship to hold its own against most modern blockbusters. Highly recommended to any fan of bonkers action cinema.

    “We’re selling a pipe dream to your average loser.”

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that Ja Rule does not seem like a super reliable business partner.

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    ★★½

    Coming from someone who’s read all seven HP books and watched all nine of the previous movies …

    … this film is borderline incomprehensible.

    Thank you, Jonah Hill. From the sincerest bottom of my heart; thank you, thank you, thank you so much ...


    ... for keeping this under 90 minutes. You have no idea how much that means to me.
